The Games Maker
Leo, an eleven-year old boy from New York, has a secret. A mysterious
illness has transformed him into a phantom boy, able to leave the
confines of his body and explore the city as a ghostly apparition. While
in the hospital, he befriends Alex, a police officer injured while
attempting to capture a nefarious gangster, who has taken control of the
city’s power supply. Now they must form an extraordinary duo, using
Leo’s phantom powers and Alex’s detective work to stop the plot and save
New York from destruction.
